Possible Couch Sighting

Was running a bit late this AM. Did not sleep well, (foreshadowing?) so I did not arrive to the office until shortly after 9. The parking garage was a bit fuller than usual, so I parked a bit furhter in than is usual for me. As I pull into my space, I look to my right and a few spaces down see a dark colored Chevy Suburban with it's rear doors open, and a semi nude man standing there.

He is in the act of putting his pants on and is standing behind his vehicle in tighty whities, black dress socks and a t shirt. As i get my things from my car, he pulls on his pants, tucks in his t shirt and slips his feet into dark colored dress shoes and begins to put on a white long sleeved dress shirt.

I can only surmise that business brougth Couch to Dallas and that in the drive from DFW Intl to The Galleria that his pants came off, which is weird, because he was not wearing pants on the plane according to the flight crew that I saw on the news just now.

Discuss. Please feel free to use pastel sticks, interpretive dance or clay to formulate your response. Non English speakers may use a translation service and lunch will be served in the galley at 7 bells in the forenoon, so plan your morning accordingly.

We are haze gray and underway, the smoking lamp is lit in all berthing spaces. That is all.

I don't know that I would check out a semi-nude man who was standing in a parking garage.

Dress shoes? He should be wearing checkered Vans. Maybe Couch has an evil twin who is a corporate shark.

Do people even wear shoes in Texas? I thought everyone wore some type of endangered species boot.

Mine are not endangered, they are extinct. Dodo bird makes a nice boot though.

My calculator is broken so I cannot formulate a proper response.

I don't want to assume him. I just want his stuff.

On this episode of Dallas:

Couch formulates a diabolical, methodical plan to overthrow jsharr from office.

jsharr forsees this plan and counteracts w/ a slap to the face with his delicious bass.

Couch drops trou and demands an apology.

Which quickly prompts jsharr to dodo-boot kick Couch in the shin.

Super-Inge bites jsharr on the buttock, where he contracts The Fever.

The End.
